Shayne, owner of Oxygene, an independent boutique located in Bal Harbour Shops, explains how Stanley Whitman founded Bal Harbour Shops, pursuing a vision that now serves as the heart of the village. Visitors continue to come from all over the world to spend the day in the shopping center that’s part rainforest, part retail destination. Of course, there’s more to Bal Harbour than shops -- when you’re ready for some outdoor recreation, the beach is mere minutes away.
